Product Review: Film Noir Collection

film noir

I’ve been a fan of “film noir” movies (click to read more, if you are not familiar with that movie genre) since I was a kid. Not that I knew what movies in this genre were actually called back then, LOL!

I always loved the mysterious feeling these movies portrayed, the night scenes, the danger, the spine-tingling suspense, the romance, the bad guys, the bad girls…what’s not to β™₯, right? πŸ˜‰

I happened to find this Film Noir Collection: two DVD set over at Amazon recently for less than $10!!!

And that is for all 10 of these film noir classics:

DOA

BEAT THE DEVIL

IMPACT

THE STRANGER

SCARLET STREET

SHOCK

PORT OF NEW YORK

THEY MADE ME A CRIMINAL

WHIRLPOOL

QUICKSAND

***

As for quality, excellent picture and sound, considering the age of the original films these were reproduced from, all from the 40’s.

Only one thing that might be a negative for some viewers, this is a full-screen version not widescreen. For me though, it was fine, as we have an OLD TV and the full screen versions for movies are actually better.

This would also make a great gift for any “film noir” fans on your list.Β It comes in aΒ black metal tin, instead of the usual plastic DVD case. Add a red ribbon tied around it and you’d be good to go! πŸ˜‰

If you are a film noir fan like I am or know someone who is, this is a must have collection!Β 

Happy Viewing!
